CW’s Crisis Will Include Black Lightning, Kevin Conroy as Bruce Wayne!
The CW has confirmed the official dates that the highly anticipated Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover along with some additional casting for the five part event!
Mark Pedowitz, President of The CW Network during the TCA panel that the event will begin with Supergirl on Sunday, December 8, continue in Batwoman on Monday, December 9, and then in The Flash on Tuesday, December 10. The event doesn’t stop there though, and fans will have to wait a little bit as part 4 of the crossover will take place during Arrow on Tuesday, January 14, 2020 at 8 PM, with the final chapter set for DC’s Legends of Tomorrow immediately afterward on Tuesday, January 14, 2020 at 9 PM.
Furthermore, the world of Black Lightning will finally crossover with the other CW DC shows as characters from the series will be featured for the first time ever in this year’s epic crossover.
The excitement doesn’t end there though as none other than legendary voice actor Kevin Conroy will make a special guest appearance as none other than Bruce Wayne from the future. Having previously voiced the character in Batman: The Animated Series, Batman Beyond, and countless other Batman series, movies, and games, this marks the first time that Conroy has played the character in live action.
The Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover event will have no shortage of characters from across the DC universe including Tyler Hoechlin as the Arrowverse’s Clark Kent/Superman with Elizabeth Tulloch as Lois Lane with Brandon Routh pulling double duty and appearing as both The Atom AND an alternate version of Supergman inspired by the Kingdom Come storyline. LaMonica Garrett will return as well, this time playing the villainous Anti-Monitor.
During the events of Elseworlds, the Monitor (LaMonica Garrett) warned the heroes of the impending “Crisis.” Crisis on Infinite Earths was written by Marv Wolfman and drawn by George Perez in 1985. It featured a villain known as the Anti-Monitor, who battled Superman, Supergirl, Batman, the Flash, and dozens of heroes from across the multiverse. The Anti-Monitor wanted to wipe out all of existence, and very nearly succeeded. The heroes and villains from the various Earths eventually formed an alliance and defeated the Anti-Monitor. However, they suffered heavy losses, including Barry Allen and Supergirl.
